MySQL Database Connection Error (Data Source Not Found)

Postby digiman999 » Wed Apr 07, 2010 12:32 pm

Hi Peeps,
Searched about 10 posts, but couldn't find the correct information. Am using the unregistered trial here to see how things map out & what it can do.

Am having trouble connecting to my domain hosted SQL database on XP SP2.

Have installed the MySQL 5.1, added & tested the ODBC connection under Control Panel->Administration Tools. That part works fine.

When going to EasyMail and connecting to database, I add,

Provider: OLD DB Provider for OBDC Drivers
Connection: Contacts [taken from the Control Panel->Admin section]
Login information: as used to login to PHPMyAdmin
Enter Initial Catalog: click this says "[Microsoft][OBDC Drive Manager] Data Source name not found and no default driver specified]

if I instead just click Test Connection, you get:
"Test connection failed because of an error in initializing provider. [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified"


It's so close, just don't understand this last section.

Appreciated in advance

Hello,

You don't need to use the Login information and you don't need to enter the Initial Catalog. Just select the provider and then check the "Use data source name" option and select your data source name. Then click Test to test the connection.
